The course will focus on linear regression andinstrumental variables analysis from an applied perspective, with emphasis on:1) Understand the strengths and weaknesses of different methods. 2) Be able tochoose appropriate methods to answer real-world questions. 3) Understand theintuition behind these methods. 4) Be able to apply these methods to analyzereal data with a powerful statistical analysis package (R).The methodologycovered in this course is broadly applicable throughout the social sciences andfinance, and numerous applications will be discussed, though we will focus onsubstantive applications in economics, particularly in the following areas:Finance  (asset diversification, CAPM),  Education Economics/LaborEconomics (returns to schooling, effects of class size on studentperformance),  Family Economics/Labor Economics (Effect of fertility onfemale labor supply), and Development/Agricultural economics (the effect ofinsurance on Chinese farmers).
